View Full Version : JVC DVD controls

I'm buying a new universal remote control, just so I can control my
squeezebox from the same remote as everything else (my old "universal"
remote didn't support JVC DVD players.)

Question: Can someone give me a comprehensive list of what functionality is
supported when using a JVC DVD controller? That way I can examine all
functionality to make sure it's working.

For example, I'm assuming the up-down-left-right keys are mapped
correctly -- at least I hope so. But what about other functionality? Is
Play mapped to PLAY? Etc.

It would be nice to know.

Thanks,

You might consider getting a "learning" universal remote, which would
give you the ability to re-program any buttons that aren't supplied.
They cost a bit more but are well worth the price in my experience.
I've had great luck with programming and/or training my Sony RM-VL900 to
control the SB, Tivo, Amp, DVD/VCR combo, etc.

I've been *very* happy with the (Logitech) Harmony 659 which someone
recommended on this list a little while ago.

I've just switched a learning remote control (Meridian MSR+)
over to the JVC DVD codes to control my squeezebox. I don't
know how closely these labels match to other remotes, but I
guess they'd be close.

This seems to be the default mapping, some sensible, some
very strange.

I *think* these are right, but I could have made some mistakes.

MSR+ Button SB Remote Button
0-9 0-9
Play Play
Stop n/a (Stop)
Pause Pause
|< n/a (Brightness down)
<< n/a (Brightness down)
>| n/a (Brightness up)
>> n/a (Brightness up)
Display Size
Return Repeat
Enter Shuffle
Top Menu Now Playing
Menu n/a (takes to "home" menu)
Power Power

I haven't found another button that does anything yet, but
I haven't checked exhaustively.

Volume buttons on the MSR+ go through to the amplifier, so I don't
know if they would normally work on the SB on other remotes.

I suspect that the strange codes can all be fixed by editing the
relevant IR control (which is easier to backup and restore than
the memory in the remote itself.

I actually find it a pain that my SB accepts signals from my JVC
remote because I'll go to turn on the dvd player and the SB turns on
too. As far as I can tell, power and play will affect the SB, but the
directionals do not.

You can turn off JVC codes in the web UI. Player Settings > Remote.
